    Friendl with good service. Answered all my numerous allergy questions. Seafood was to die for! A bit pricey, but worth every penny. Only suggestion - restauarant needs a dessert without eggs! My allergy prevented me from being able to eat a dessert :(

    Excellent location for late evening dining and conversations. The lighting, atmosphere and ambiance are a triple threat to calm and soothe the nerves at the end of a chaotic and busy day...the delicious food is just icing on the cake. Oh yes...the wine list is sure to close the deal...whatever that may be.

    Made reservations on line for 4 at 6:15. Arrived a little early. We were warmly greeted by the front staff and seated promptly. The waiter welcomed us and took our drink order and explained the special veterans menu. The salads were fresh and I really enjoyed the Wedge. We all had different fish dishes and everyone commented on how well theirs was prepared and tasted. Toped the evening off with outstanding deserts. We will return and highly recommend this restaurant.

    The restaurant is nice, the food was bland. I was disappointed in the food as a whole. We had to add salt to everything just to have some resemblance of flavor. The waiter was also disappointing. His demeanor was one of either tired or just not feeling like waiting tables. We likely won't be back anytime soon.

    We went with high expectations, the restaurant has very nice location in uptown Houston and the hostess greeted us promptly. Another plus they noticed we were there with our 13 month old baby and they gave us the semi private dining area. The waiter was very professional and knowledgeable and we ordered our food from his recommendation. The food however was rated on the following: Calamari was excellent Mussels were also good The grilled Cobia was fair The dry aged rib eye was too thin for a rib eye and was way too salty The beef tenderloin was also very salty and not so tender But the bread was good could it have been an off day for the kitchen staff, hmmm possible but how can you get steaks wrong.

    We were there with six people. Everyone loved the food and experience. The only down side is we were in one of their semi-private 'rooms', which was a bit crowded for us and made it difficult for the server. Personally, I'd preferred to be at a large round table in the main dining area. Next time, I'll make that request when I book a table that large.

    Food was very good. My steak was perfectly prepared and my wife's Bouillabaisse was delicious. A casual drink on the patio after was an excellent cap to the evening. It was my wife's birthday and she was impressed with the Brownie/Ice cream and Happy Birthday written in chocalate on the plate. Not your typical cupcake.

  • Who doesn't know Oprah is in town?
    RondaG
    Dined on 10/18/2014
    We walked into the restaurant and there was a line. Oprah was at the Toyota Center.The manager did not bother to look at that or care that I had a reservation. His exact words were " Are you part of that Oprah Group?" I said yes but I have a reservation and he said we are swamped and you will have to wait. We thought the bar would be faster service but we were wrong. We literally had to write down our order and hand it to the bartender after we set for 20 min with no service. Once we received our kale salads 5 min before we had to leave, we looked at the waitress and said these are not kale. Her response was " I know, we ran out earlier." Staff was literally running because management was unprepared.

    I went here for a celebration dinner with my friend and we had an amazing time. Started the evening with the shrimp kisses. My entree was the surf and turf. Her entree was the mixed grill. We finished with the creme brûlée for dessert. The presentation of each dish was stunning and everything was perfectly cooked. It was the best meal either of us have had in a very long time. I look forward to my next meal there!

    This was a great experience for my husbands birthday. The personalized menus were a fun touch, but the best thing about our visit was the food. All 12 of our guests were extremely happy with their seafood or steaks, and i think i could have made a meal out of just the variety of mashed potato dishes that were at the table. Thank you McCormick & Schmick's for making it such a great day.
